On a whole, the lineage of the furniture is rooted more in the classic traditional style. But the finishes and the execution run toward a more contemporary direction.
Each of the pieces will be custom sized and custom finished to echo our warm neutral palate that we have executed for our upholstered pieces. (see the original floor plan here, see the custom furniture pieces here)
The nice thing about doing custom pieces is that they can truly be modified to fit perfectly into our custom floor plan.
Our cocktail table and end table are custom iron pieces. with a unique finish for the iron that has an usual texture and color quality. The tops of the pieces are made of 3/4” travertine.

The focal piece for the room will be a unique cabinet that will anchor our TV area, on the far side of the room. The carving on this piece creates a uniqueness about it that is both traditional and contemporary at the same time, and makes a great statement for the overall look of the room.
At this point in the project, the client has come back with an additional request for Rich – originally we were going to use their existing draperies that were in the room because they were relatively neutral and would work well with the fabrics the client had approved. However, after seeing how the room is coming together they decided they would like new drapes after all. So in our next post, we’ll be incorporating this and showing your some design ideas for the drapes as well as the fabrics we’ve selected.
As always, we would love your comments, feedback and questions!
